Pittalhar temple was built by Bhima Shah, who was a minister under Sultan Begada. The most striking feature of this temple is a gigantic metal statue of Tirthankara Rishab Dev.
Though brass is the key metal used in this statue, four other metals have also been used. Brass is called pital and hence the name Pittalhar temple. The temple consists of a Garbhagriha, Gudh mandap and Navchowki.
